Bring Everything to the Light

Handwritten page from the book of Psalms chapter 119 verses 104 through 136.
Psalms 119:104-136

Synopsis Psalms 119:104-136 2/16/2022 

For the psalmist, God’s word is a light to enlighten his path. Therefore, bring everything to the light. 

Similarly, the law is a heritage from the Lord. It was a legacy for the psalmist, and also for his children. 

So, the righteous man will have nothing to do with evil. Instead, he will say, “Depart from me, workers of iniquity, that I may follow God’s command.” 

Bring Everything to the Light 

When I do something wrong, I do not need to be told to hide. I instinctively look to avoid the temporal consequences and the shame of my own faithlessness. I instinctively hide. 

And I’m good at hiding. I’m so good that sometimes I even deceive myself. I tell myself that the evil I’ve done doesn’t really matter. I hide things so well that sometimes I even forget what I’ve done – at least for a while.  

But everyone knows there’s no healing a forgotten thing.  

Healing only comes by bravely bringing it back to the light. It’s only when I bring my iniquity back to conscious awareness that healing can start. It’s only when I allow the light of God’s truth to fully measure my behavior that I begin to embrace redemption.  

“For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come toward the light, so that his works might not be exposed. But whoever lives the truth comes to the light, so that his works may be clearly seen as done in God.” John 3:20-21
